The must-see photos of 2016

While virtual took the world by storm, augmented reality went to the next level in 2016 thanks to the popularity of Pokémon Go. The augmented reality game, created in partnership with Niantic and The Pokémon Company, was released on July 6, 2016. The app reached 10 million downloads in seven days, setting a record, and it reached 100 million downloads by the end of July.

Pokémon mania spread around the world, including at the Pikachu Outbreak event pictured here in August in Yokohama, Japan. A total of 1, 000 Pikachus appear at the city’s landmarks in the Minato Mirai area aiming to attract visitors and tourists to the city.
